Default Google Hangout?

My 7th grader wants this because her best friend has it. It looks okay.

Default Re: Google Hangout?

The 7th graders at our Christian homeschool coop use Google Hangouts to do group chats with each other. I would not have a problem with my middle schooler using it (within parental monitoring of who they're connected with and chat content of courses).

Default Re: Google Hangout?

Love hangouts. I encourage my kids to use it with their friends. It helps so much with typing speed, if used on a laptop/desktop.

It does require a gmail account. Until my kids had theirs, they used mine.

It's okay, as long as you keep an eye on it, as with any chatting software. It's like Skype, except that it allows group chats.

Yes. I have all the kids chat/email stuff come through my phone. It's annoying sometimes, but worth it.

Default Re: Google Hangout?

The only thing I would worry about is that there is an incognito mode on it, so it would be pretty easy to talk and not have any records of the conversation. If she didn't want you to know something, it would be easy to hide.

I still think it is a pretty safe place (since it isn't really social media so random people can't "find you"), but there are gaps in monitoring you should be aware about.

I like it and have no problems with my kids having it.

It's easy to monitor and pretty safe.
